I don't know which I want more! Bridgewater Fair Raffle is afoot!

I know, the Bridgewater Fair isn't until August 19th, but the raffle is already afoot! And I'm as excited as those pigs in the pig races! Just wait till you see the prizes this year. 

This year marks the 65th Anniversary of the Bridgewater Country Fair in Bridgewater, CT, from August 19th thru August 21st at the Bridgewater Fair Grounds. 65 years of great fun, great food, entertainment, animals, rides, shopping, oxen pulls, tractor pulls, great food (did I say that again?), and of course the raffle!

This years raffle is amazing! I am not sure which prize I am going to win but any would be great fun! OK, maybe not the last one, I would give that to one of my daughters, and they would have great fun!

So, for the cost of some unpronounceable coffee at one of those fancy coffee shops, you can enter the raffle. 

Really? Only 5 bucks? Yep, only 5 bucks will get you a chance to win one of these great prizes! And I do mean GREAT! Or buy a packet of 5 for $25. 

1st Prize: 2016 Jeep Wrangler Sport Willy's Edition

2nd Prize: Raven 7100B Multi-Purpose Hybrid

2rd Prize: Honda Rukus Scooter

4th Prize: Custom Smoker/Grill - Trailer Mounted

5th Prize: Honda EU3000i Generator

6th Prize: Phantom 3 Drone

7th Prize: $500 Gym Source Gift Certificate

Remember, the proceeds go to the Bridgewater Volunteer Fire Department! The Bridgewater Country Fair and the Raffle have been the main source of income for the Bridgewater Fire Department since its inception in 1956.  And due to their hard work for the past 65 years they are the only self funded fire department in Connecticut. 

So come on, take a chance, get in the spirit of the Bridgewater Country Fair. You can purchase your raffle tickets at the following locations:

  • Bridgewater Village Store
  • Burnham Library, Bridgewater
  • Bridgewater Senior Center
  • Bridgewater Town Hall
  • The Elephants Trunk, New Milford
  • Bridgewater Firfighters/EMT's
  • Bridgewater Firehouse Thursdays 7 pm and Sundays at 9am.

The drawing will be held Monday, August 22, 2016, Bridgewater Fire House, at 6:00 pm. And you don't have to be present to win. Prizes are not redeemable for cash. For more information about the raffle click here.

This is a win/win situation. You get a chance to win a really great prize and you get a chance to support a local fire department. We who live here know how important our local fire departments are. Even if you don't live in Bridgewater, they often respond to fires in other areas when needed. They are all amazing people who put their lives on the line for us, as volunteers, no questions asked.

Andre I still remember meeting you several years ago and the Jeep you were driving.  So I bet a new Jeep would feel real good :)
